Headteacher Message

Mrs. Jennifer Evans

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week, pupils have been incredibly busy with all the fantastic opportunities available to them at Dean Trust Wigan. Year 7 footballers travelled to Lowton Church of England High School for a cup game; Year 8 rounders players took part in their first rounders tournament at Shevington High School against seven other schools from the Wigan area; and pupils from Key Stage 3 took part in the Just Join In Inclusion Football Festival at Wigan Athletic Academy.

In our Modern Foreign Languages (‘MFL’) Department, Year 7 pupils went head to head against Year 10 pupils in a vocabulary test about school subjects, with Year 10 winning despite tremendous enthusiasm and determination from the Year 7 pupils.

In Art, Year 9 pupils have been learning about different techniques and have proudly shown off their work after experimenting with the drip technique as part of their Expressive Portrait project.

Year 10 pupils visited Wigan & Leigh College last Friday and experienced the wide range of courses that the college offers. Mr Yates received some fantastic feedback about our pupils’ behaviour and conduct during the visit, which I am thrilled to hear.

For Year 11 pupils, the majority of pupils have now sat their final exam, with the Physics exam taking place on Friday afternoon. The final exam for pupils studying Hospitality & Catering is on Thursday 20th June 2024. Pupils sitting this exam must still attend school for their exam booster session, and the exam on 20th June. I would like to congratulate all pupils on their hard work, dedication, and perseverance throughout this incredibly stressful time in their lives. All pupils should be proud of the commitment they have shown, and I wish all pupils the best of luck for their results. The Year 11 Leavers Ceremony will take place on Monday 17th June and communication has been sent home about this. Pupils are asked to donate their tie, blazer and PE kit after the ceremony in return for a reward.

I wish you all a restful weekend.
